The "Marinated" Classroom. A Sourcebook of Aquatic Activities for the Elementary Classroom.
Rakow, Steven J.
This handbook is designed to meet the aquatic education needs of Minnesota elementary teachers and students (aquatic education referring to the study of freshwater systems). The handbook is divided into three parts. Part 1 (an introduction) provides an overview of aquatic education, a description of the use of the handbook, and two indexes to curriculum materials (defined as instructional materials providing ideas or plans for water-related activities). These materials include either complete courses of study or short collections of activities. The first index lists curriculum materials by source, with full references for requesting them by mail. The second index lists the curriculum materials by their Minnesota water topic area. Topic areas include: water and society (water in daily lives, water in history and culture, water quality problem); water in nature (water cycle, properties of water, life in water); and attitudes about and experiences with water. Curriculum materials are listed alphabetically by title in the second part and include for each entry: source, price, grade level, subject area(s), student prerequisites, time required, and other information. The last part provides an annotated list of student/teacher references. These include trade books, bibliographies, pamphlets, and audio-visual materials and their sources. (Author/JN)
